Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

ATHUG who sub­jected a friend to a vi­cious fourhour as­sault, a pris­oner who threw a bucket of urine over a cus­tody of­fi­cer and a man who beat up his for­mer part­ner... they are among the crim­i­nals who have been sent to prison in the past week. DAMIEN DAVIES The for­mer soldier sub­jected a friend to a vi­cious four-hour as­sault which in­cluded re­peat­edly punch­ing and kick­ing the man be­fore slam­ming a heavy glass ash­tray into his head and put­ting him in choke­holds.

Davies’ vic­tim had to “play dead” while be­ing throt­tled by the ex-Welsh Guards­man in a des­per­ate bid to save him­self. AN­DREW JONES Jones, who was in prison af­ter be­ing con­victed of at­tempted mur­der, threw a bucket of fae­ces and urine over a cus­tody of­fi­cer’s head.

The 45-year-old left the prison of­fi­cer soaked be­fore tak­ing a bow in front of a crowd of in­mates dur­ing the in­ci­dent at HMP Prison Parc Brid­gend.

He was given a 20-month sen­tence af­ter en­ter­ing an early guilty plea to ad­min­is­ter­ing a poi­sonous or nox­ious thing with in­tent to in­jure.

Asked if he would like to of­fer any mit­i­ga­tion for his ac­tions, the de­fen­dant said: “I hope he can taste it ev­ery time he closes his eyes.” JA­SON ATHERNOUGHT A judge told Athernought he had had no re­gard for the lives of other road users as he sped through Swansea En­ter­prise Zone at speeds top­ping 85mph.

He said the driv­ing was so bad he would be fail­ing in his pub­lic duty if he did not im­pose an im­me­di­ate cus­to­dial sen­tence.

Athernought was unin­sured and only held a pro­vi­sional li­cence as he drove in a man­ner de­scribed as “off the scale of reck­less”. JOHN ROGERS Rogers beat up his for­mer part­ner and ef­fec­tively held her pris­oner for a week in an ef­fort to get her to with­draw a com­plaint against him.

A judge de­scribed Rogers as a “bully” who needed to be taught a les­son.

Rogers was jailed for 14 months. CEEJAY JOHN He rammed his car into a ve­hi­cle which was driven by his ex-girl­friend with a preg­nant woman and 14-month-old baby in­side.

The 23-year-old drove his car into the rear driver’s side of his ex­girl­friend Fearne Ray­mond’s Vaux­hall Corsa af­ter get­ting “an­gry and ag­gres­sive” dur­ing an ar­gu­ment.

Sen­tenc­ing, Recorder Carl Har­ri­son said: “You said you would do this ear­lier in your tele­phone call and you car­ried out the threat you made by de­lib­er­ately us­ing your car as a weapon while know­ing the car con­tained four peo­ple, one of which was a child.” LIAM DAVIES The 18-year-old was caught af­ter blood was dis­cov­ered all over the in­side of an aban­doned car.

The car be­longed to a man who was in hospi­tal be­ing treated for se­ri­ous in­juries and of­fi­cers dis­cov­ered Bradley All­man had been at­tacked by Davies in a “fren­zied and fe­ro­cious at­tack”. LEWIS DAVIES He was locked up for tak­ing po­lice on a five-mile chase while armed with a knife and high on co­caine.

Sparks flew from his car as he slammed the blue Rover over speed bumps as he was tailed by po­lice in Wrex­ham. JOHN FRAN­CIS The pae­dophile from North Wales who abused a girl over seven years claimed he had strug­gled with “sex­ual sins”.

Fran­cis, from Prestatyn, abused the child be­tween 2008 and 2015. CHRISTO­PHER GARROCH He was jailed for sex­u­ally as­sault­ing a teenage boy af­ter giv­ing him il­le­gal drugs.

Garroch had de­nied the of­fences and was due to stand trial at Caernar­fon Crown Court but changed his plea just be­fore the trial be­gan.

He was jailed for three years and seven months. LOUIS BEAGEN A con­victed pae­dophile used his dad’s so­cial me­dia ac­counts to send sex­ual mes­sages to girls he thought were teenagers.

Louis Beagen, 25, used his dad’s iPad and phone to con­tact three Face­book ac­counts in Sep­tem­ber 2017.

He thought they be­longed to chil­dren aged be­tween 13 and 14.

New­port Crown Court heard that he was ac­tu­ally com­mu­ni­cat­ing with adults on ac­counts run by so-called pae­dophile hunt­ing groups.
